Hyper Terminal

hyper.js has been the platform neutral Terminal app of choice for me since last year of so. I used and loved iTerm2 a lot and used it for years, till I started considering moving to linux

I used Hyper exclusively on macOS for months before I decided to switch to linux (I'm most likely to go back to macOS) and even on linux I'm not disappointed. It is better than built-in terminal

Anyway, one of the "problem" I faced recently was when using emacs in a terminal (emacs -nw) I couldn't use M-x (which is Alt-x) commands cause Alt is mapped to hamburger Menu by default on linux.

So nice to see that keymaps can be customized. I added the following to my ~/.hyper.js. Problem Solved!

  keymaps: {
  // default `alt` clashes with emacs M-x
  // Plus I hardly need to invoke hamburgermenu via keyboard
  "window:hamburgerMenu": "f12"
